|ARTS (Analog Realtime Synthesizer)
is a software-based modular synthesizer running under linux. Now you don't
need a soldering iron and PAiA schematics to build that super-rad ARP knockoff.
While you're considering audio for linux, you should really spend some time surfing
the metalinks at Dave Philips' linux audio links.

|Ah, people movers. There are vertical traveling ones, horizontal traveling ones, the ones that move you inside airports, and the ones that move you to airports (or ski lodges, or just about anywhere else).
Take, for instance, the German Project Elan, a 1970s "dolls ride for free" system, one of many supported automated peoplemover technologies. If you like your transport systems on the ground, maybe you'll like the Monomobile, (just strap on your car!) one of many suspended urban transit technologies. There are so many transportation options in development, and that already exist, after some time at the Innovative Transportation Technologies site, you might never want to step foot in a car again.

|Attrition.org is devoted to a variety of interesting topics both internet and everyday, but I found most interesting the pages archiving
confirmed denial of service (DoS) attacks and confirmed web mirror hacks
to unsuspecting websites. Now the packet monkeys can keep score.

|Racial Greetings, Whiteys! The Mothers of the
Movement page is for White Aryan women to learn how to better
serve their families and, most importantly, their owners. I mean
husbands. Er, anyway, the site includes
recipes and fun toys for
kids, because saving money means that every dollar saved is a dollar
not given to the jewish capital machine that's out to destroy us.

|It's amazing all the comic strips that are available online now. You
can catch up on Alison Bechdel's Dykes to Watch
Out For, previously only seen in bound collections and
"alternative" papers. Barbara Branson is for some reason, categorized
as an "editorial cartoonist" for her incredible strip, Where I'm
Coming From. On the other hand, there's nothing like the
perverse, often hideously offensive, usually ironic cartoons of John Callahan. Make sure you
read his hate mail. And
for a truly weird time, you may not be able to read Jim's Journal
online anymore but you can still play with the Jim's Journal Strip
Generator. "I wrote a language parser and it was OK."

|If you want or need old school Borland compilers, such as
Turbo Pascal v1.0 or Turbo C v1.0, go check out
The Borland Community Museum. (You'll probably want to click the "Anonymous" button at the login
prompt). They also have some information about
Borland history, and
they're working on adding a Hall of Fame.|

|Not content to steal credit for Linux, our friends at the Free Software Foundation are now working on stealing the Linux mascot as well. The downside of Linux's open source market environment is that there's no one to provide the comedic relief of suing Richard Stallman into the ground for trademark infringement.|

|As many of you know, U.S. citizens do not vote directly in national elections - rather, we deliver our opinions through a labrynthine system known as Electoral Colleges. While the relative merits of Electoral Colleges have been the source of fierce academic debates, serious quantitative rigor remains alien to those schooled in Political Science. Consequently, most essays on the topic are eloquently-crafted polemics built upon poorly-constructed models riddled with questionable assumptions. In this arena, Will Hively's Math Against Tyranny stands alone as a lively, interesting and quantitatively sound defense of Republic democracy.

|I grew up with Samoyed,
as did my mother. The one I grew up with was an adorable,
sweet-tempered, clown of a dog,
like most Samoyeds are.
He was a puppy into his last days..
The one mom grew up with was a terror, which is rare for the breed. Someday I'll
put her tales of that dog on the Web. Until then, you'll have to suffer with a
Samoyed's own story.
(OK, so that's hokey. But Samoyeds ARE that goofy.)

Not only can you go back to the

Surfing in Tokyo? go to Odaiba.
Leave the madness of Tokyo for Mt. Kumotori.
And after all of this intense Japanese culture, if you're feeling lost, maybe you need the new Casio GPS watch.
